If You Didn’t Do Your Job, Would You Be Able to Keep Your Job? It’s Time We Fired These Politicians

You do realize that we had a Democrat Senate majority and a Democrat House majority between 2008 and 2010, don’t you? And let’s not forget our “Hope and Change” (boy howdy, did the man CHANGE things) Democrat president.

That means, between 2008 and 2010 the Democrats CONTROLLED this country. And they mucked things up by passing and spending as much as they could possibly get away with because they knew it wouldn’t last. Did they pass a budget between 2008 and 2010? Was there even a budget PROPOSED between 2008 and 2010?


The Republicans took control of the House in late 2010; they proposed a budget that the Democrats STILL wouldn’t/couldn’t agree on, let alone pass – that’s WAY more than the Democrats even attempted in TWO FREAKING YEARS.

Dude. You can’t argue with facts.

The fact is: Democrats can’t bring themselves to pass any sort of budget because they know that in order to balance the budget they will HAVE to make unpopular cuts and tick off their voter base. And rather than lose votes, they are opting to sit back, do nothing, and bide their time so that WHEN the American people have had enough of their nonsense and vote the Republicans back into majority and the Republicans try and do THE RESPONSIBLE thing, like propose a budget, the Democrats can sit back, point fingers and try and make the Republicans into the bad guys thereby shifting the responsibility.

Democrats are allergic to responsibility and making tough decisions. It’s seriously pathetic.

Here’s why passing a budget is crucial:

The process has to start with a budget. Then, using the guidelines and caps established in the budget resolution, the House and Senate produce authorization bills for each government agency telling them what they can and can’t spend money on. Coupled with those authorization bills are the twelve annual appropriations bills that actually apply the funding to those authorized programs and activities.

When Congress doesn’t get those bills done, they end up having to cram everything into an “omnibus” or a “continuing resolution”. An omnibus means that some or all of the twelve appropriations bills are lumped together in a single bill and passed en masse – without the same level of scrutiny and thoughtfulness as happens when they are dealt with individually. Worse still is the “continuing resolution”, where essentially no consideration is given and Congress votes to continue funding the government at current levels.


Get it? Congress is not doing its job.

And yet, they still have jobs.

What’s wrong with this picture?!?


Sink or Swim?


The moment of truth has arrived – will I sink, or will I swim?

If we could all ignore the glistening water and thoughts of warmer temperatures and balmy breezes for a moment …

First of all … we got an email this week from the hospital: Our clinic was named in the top 100 in the country for our specialty. (How’s that for vague?)

And it’s ALL because I’m NOW working there. That’s right. They rock because of ME.

And yes. I actually said that to my boss.

Luckily, she has a sense of humor. 😀

Anyway, I’m proud to work where I work – we not only help people – we’re GOOD at helping people and now the whole healthcare industry knows it.

*snap* We. Kick. Ass. Ya’ll.

And this week nearly kicked my ass. We were so busy Thursday that I was literally running through the clinic to get one of our doctors on the line with a doctor at the main hospital all so I could help a patient I felt sorry for because she hadn’t eaten all day due to reasons I can’t go into here. (How’s that for vague? It’s maddening, I know).

They’re sending me to Branson this coming Friday.

By myself.

Well. Not by MYSELF, but I will be working the receptionist/scheduling area by myself.


I’ll be setting up the laptops in the exam rooms for the doctor/staff. Then I will be making sure the patients have everything they need signed, taking their picture for their chart, collecting co-pays and when they have been seen, I will be checking them out of the clinic by making sure they are scheduled for any tests the doctor wants and any follow up visits.

It’s going to be challenging. But I’m up to the task, I think. This will be my first time flying solo though and I’m a bit nervous. The doctor I will be helping is one I haven’t worked with that much, but I ADORE his nurse and I’m so glad she will be there.

I had my 90-day review the other day (I’ve actually been there four months now. FOUR MONTHS. Can you believe it?!?)

No raise, but I can keep my job.

That’s good news.

I’m thinking seriously of utilizing the employee discount and joining the hospital fitness center. I’d go in at 5:00, work out for an hour, go home, get cleaned up and then go to work. It sounds insane, but I actually did that for two years straight back when I was working at Wal-Mart. I need to do something – my job is mentally challenging, not physically challenging, and I sit all day long.

My hips are expanding. This is not acceptable.
